New Hampshire Renewable Energy Fund (REF)
When funding is exhausted
$1,500, $1,700 or $1,900, depending on annual estimated system output
New Hampshire offers a rebate for residential solar water-heating systems and solar space-heating systems. The rebate is equal to $1,500 for systems with an annual estimated output of 5.5 MMBTU to 19.9 MMBTU; $1,700 for systems with an annual estimated output of 20 MMBTU to 29.9 MMBTU; and $1,900 for systems with an annual estimated output of 30 MMBTU or more. Rebates will be awarded for eligible projects as long as program funding is available.
The application process consists of two steps. The first step is required for pre-approval and to reserve a rebate, and the second step is the final application for the rebate payment. Systems must be installed by a qualified installer authorized to do business in New Hampshire. Self-installations are allowed, but such installers are encouraged to work with the Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative. See the program web site for more information.
This program is funded by alternative compliance payments from New Hampshire's renewable portfolio standard (RPS), which are directed into the state's renewable energy fund.
Must be SRCC-certified and meet standards for Category C (mildly cloudy weather)
